We chatted before, thank you for your comments. Under attorneys, what
categories (specializing in) would i likely include in my search?
''An attorney is recommended. If funds are an issue, please let me know via REPLY and I can possibly provide leads for low cost/pro bono counsel.''Yes, thank you. Suggestions for either route please (privacy or intentional inflict...)I'm going to include some general information in case an attorney would like an initial review of the circumstances.Sincerely,===General Information===I may have to explain my narrative further for you to provide general information that properly reflects.Since last I explained this I found the techniques and tactics and technologies involved match up with counter-insurgency military doctrine. This doctrine has been adopted by various agencies and entities under the auspices of community policing, public safety,etc. There are a number of grant programs to further these changes to public policy.There is also technology/knowledge transfer from military national guard, etc to civilian authorities. If not free, it's pretty close to this for the civilian authorities. If what is need for an operation is not available via the government programs there are business to government procurement channels, although the procuring entity must intiallypurchase the products or services. If an operation scales high then military will run the operation (title 10/versus title 32)There are also a number of laws that have changed to allow intelligence gathering not based on probably cause. In fact, often investigations can be open and intelligence gathering can begin based on a subjective evaluation.My guess is that the nonlethal directed energy systems are being "evaluated", albeit in real world scenarios. Probably, Department of Justice >> Bureau of Justice >> Recovery Act >> new and innovative policing techniques. International humanitarian law generally advices evaluation of new technologies prior to employment. Further,my guess is the daily tactical plans incorporate a minimum force standard intending to avoid conflict with existing civil rights and humanitarian laws. Also, the daily operations seem to be designed to be clandestine to avoid public scrutiny and potential law suits.The same policing system is used for a certain set of high priority crimes and scales both geographically and force application/threat level.Three main reasons why it's been rather confusing (1) It's the same system used for a wide array of potential crimes, so figuring what happened and how to solve it is next to impossible. (2) Counter-insurgency military doctrine has two main sub-components: information operations and asymmetric warfare. Information operations includes five things, two of which are psychological operations and electronic warfare. So there is a level of deception present designed to distract, deter, deny and disrupt daily living. (3) It scales, so the majority of the time it is your neighbors and in general community but if travelling across state or even internationally, the investigated are met with a daily tactical plan wherever they go.The type of daily things that are happening, try to picture the hand held phasor on the sci-fi Star Trek series. The phasor concept included an adjustable beam width, 16 varying power levels, blast or stream. And there were a number of effects, from heating rocks to stun to kill. A real life system has many possible effects including inserting pertubations into daily living situations. My belief is that the assessment team is under time/cost restraints so must artificially attempt to provoke. Public Safety is there to clean up if anything goes really wrong.I paid 5k for a directed energy report that verified these DE solutions are being produced and used for Homeland Defense with solutions offered/manufacturers/pictures/etc. I've even found the government procurement channels for purchase and grant programs.It's not just myself but also my two small children. It's effected-based, contributing to an ends justify the means philosophy in daily operations. The systems are classifed as nonlethal, operate at a stand off distance, are silent and invisible. The operators at the lowest
echelons don't appear to be held to a high standard of accountability.
My children and I are shot in our private areas, the eyes, in the head, etc.Counter-insurgency strategy says it's a protracted battle that must be won over time. This translates into daily operations designed to wear an adversary out, using weapon systems that apply a minimum standard of force, don't kill innocents and doesn't destroy infrastructure. Application of force is not the only weapon, the operations seek to build the communities involved socially, politically and economically and tear down the individual.
possible leads for low cost/pro bono counsel. Or any highly recommended. Sorry, it's well past the time I initially posted. I included some background and situational information in case you wanted to forward this to potential counsel for review prior to responding.
May I hire JustAnswers again to respond to the same question? Because I've provided additional background and detail. I'm interested to find out if the general informational answer differs in light of.
What kind of attorney to begin my search (areas of specialty)?
Thank you, ***** ***** great.
